Babies of Belfast

Let’s see what Belfast can look like through beautiful babies! #BabiesofBelfast

We got caught up in the beauty that is Humans of New York. We found the idea so simple and elegant and so perfect. So much so, that we attempted to map the city of Belfast’s littlest citizens ourselves.

From babies participating in our workshops to your babies at home we wanted to capture the personalities behind those beautiful faces.

 

 

A great big thank you to everyone who submitted photos of their babies for our Babies of Belfast feature!
